    I am of the mind that Donald Trump could sexually molest a live chicken on prime time TV and his supporters would talk about how wonderful it was.

    The emoluments clause is very specific, tell me which part Trump violated.

    It is not "very specific". It is incredibly vague, which is why there were further laws created to deal with it.

    No Title of Nobility shall be granted by the United States: And no Person holding any Office of Profit or Trust under them, shall, without the Consent of the Congress, accept of any present, Emolument, Office, or Title, of any kind whatever, from any King, Prince, or foreign State.

    Oh you mean like the one that says the president cannot have a conflict of interest?

    Thanks for proving my point.
